Sisters are absolutely precious, and it helps even more that they’re of our like gender–it makes them easier to shop for… at least beauty wise! As much as we’d love to get our boys addicted to skilled skin regimens, we often fail, but we can convince our marvelous younger sister to invest in an acne treatment or introduce our older sister to the bliss of anti-aging products.

No matter what your sister is like, we have some amazing products in store for her this season!

With the holidays, I know I can’t help but treat my best friends to some of my favorite beauty products I’ve tried (and running a beauty blog certainly has given me a plethora of products to pull from!). In fact, I am a total gift-builder. I love to pick up baskets from a craftstore, add a few embellishments (like faux flowers, potpourri, etc.), and stuff it full of what I’m giving. I find it adds a great personal touch! Continue reading →

Hey, fathers can indulge themselves in a spa treatment–well, maybe not a spa treatment–but in some beautification for themselves, too. Unless your dad is like mine (hates beauty products, can’t stand any perfume-y scent, etc.), you can easily find an appropriate product or two to supplement that fancy gadget you already got for him.

Mom’s can be difficult to shop for, because so many of us have darling mothers who spend little time fussing about their looks and adore their minimalist beauty regimens. Of course, some of us also have mothers who are bigger beauty addicts than ourselves (sigh, don’t I wish!). Today’s guide, however, is dedicated to finding the perfect beauty products for the mom who doesn’t mind looking amazing, as long as it is easy, quick, and painless.

THE MINIMALIST MOM | Surprise her by providing her with a basket of beauty goodies that improve her regimen without adding hours to it. Everybody loves their skin to look their best, so we think this is one aspect to concentrate on for moms with less beauty product love and more natural beauty love.

Everybody has–or should have–a little black dress that’s suitable for just about any occasion. Here’s a great example of something classy with a bit of fun, too, by Calvin Klein (and hey, it’s even reasonably priced!). We’re lovin’ Dior’s quint in Sunset Cafe for its soft gold, taupe, and pink-beige. Even the antique gold with green undertones (center shadow) could be the most gorgeous color in the crease. Pink-beige all over lid with gold on the outer ldi and the deeper taupe in the crease with the gray-beige as a brow highlighter impresses us when paired with this dress. Try Blush ‘n Brighten in Berry by Laura Gellar for a great flush with gold shimmer on the cheeks. We like Dior’s “I Love Dior” lip palette because it gives us several colors to work with. The berry (second one) would be a lovely way to top off the look we’ve described here.

1. Calvin Klein Strapless Satin Party Dress @ Nordstrom for $168.00icon
2. Laura Gellar’s Blush N Brighten in Berry @ Sephora for $28.00
3. Dior Quint in Sunset Cafe @ Sephora for $52.00
4. Dior “I Love Dior” Lip Palette @ Sephora for $40.00

One of the best aspects of the little black dress is that it is versatile, which means makeup can range from pitch-black smoky eyes to lavish false lashes and a bold red lip. It really is anyone’s desire that can be fulfilled (makeup-wise!) when it comes to dressing to impress in a LBD. Still, a classic red lip with lots of mascara is a combination you could never go wrong with. Try mixing your look up by experimenting with other bold lip colors like berries, vamps, and crimsons. And don’t forget long, voluminous lashes for a bit of drama.
